Copic Multiliner SP Review
Today I take a look at the Copic Multiliner SP pen set that I purchased while overaseas at Dick Blick Art Supplies.
The Copic Multiliner SP pens come in different pen sets and configurations, available in colour inks, and available as single markers. Copic Multiliners are from the same brand of well known markers for papercrafting, design, and manga artists.
Why Copic Multiliner SP pens?A few of the regular personalities that I follow on the Youtube crafting world use the Copic Multiliners for their journaling, customising stamped images, and edging their fussy cut stamps.
They've always gave Copic Multiliners a raving review on durability and their excellence at waterproof inking. They can be used for technical drawing, watercolours, or lining the outside of stamped edges.
These the ultimate "green" multiliner solution while offering customisability. The barrels are made of aluminium and are light weight.
The biggest plus for these pens besides having the well known Copic brand behind them, is that they are completely replaceable in parts. You can replace the nib, you can customise the nib, and if you change your minds replace the nib again.
The liners are refillable - so if you run out of ink halfway through a project you can fill the barrel with more ink and keep going.
I would periodically pick up replacement liner pens when I visited the other city (8 hrs away) and try to stock up, but not having a stockist locally was having me ration my multi-liner use. Ration!
These pens are extremely well made, light weight, and durable.
Should you buy?
If I were looking for the "ultimate" ecological pen set that can be refilled - yes. The Copic Multiliner SP pen set's price point may have some people hesitant to buy these pens. At $80 USD these pens are a bit on the pricey side.
However, their features such as replaceable nibs, refillable barrels, and light weight body may have enough pluses to offset the price.
For more information, please visit the Copic Marker website, where they give an in depth overview of the Copic Multiliner SP.
This has now become my favourite multiliner pen set for drawings.
What's your favourite pen set?
